|Tekstyle still makes a nice looking product, but today's tarp does not compare to the tarp they made five to ten years ago. They have gone to components of less quality (inexpensive) and it shows.|
|This is my second Tekstyle cover but the first one that I installed myself.|
The instruction sheet did not say anything about the 4 Allen set screws in the corners. i would have forgot them except that one fell out on the truck bed and reminded me. they should all be tightened.
2 spare snaps came with the hardware pack and each side rail had an extra snap on the rail. 4 total spares - nice!
when surfing the net and reading customer comments about various tonneau covers one of the most common negative statements was the one about the rear snaps being hard to snap after the installation. i saw at least two of these comments about the tekstyle product.
from experience with my previous tekstyle when trying to re-snap them on a cold day here is how to overcome this problem. my installation went extremely well. however, when I got to the tailgate to snap the snaps on the rear rail I too experienced the snap tops being a good half inch away from the snap bottoms.
Keep in mind that this cover had been sitting rolled up in a box for no telling how long before you receive it. It needs to be stretched! here's how to do it.
get a piece of wood or plastic about 1/2" by 1/2 by 10" and a small plastic mallet or hammer. starting at the front place the wood end on the front edge of the front most snap and tap it gently toward the tailgate several times. then do the next two snaps. then move to the other side and do the same, doing three snaps at a time. repeat this working your way toward the tailgate. Each time you do this t moves the snap closer to the tailgate rail.
On my installation after doing this procedure about four times i had the snaps tops almost aligned to be able to snap on to the snap bottom. at this point, using a pair of wide duck bill pliers, flat jaws WITH NO TEETH, i carefully gripped the vinyl and gently tugged back just enough to position the top of snap over the bottom and uning my finger - SNAP! i got all those pesky rear snaps all closed.
i think the colder the temperature is during a driveway install the more difficult it is to get that stretch needed to get those rear snaps closed. I would think on a ninety degree day that vinyl would be nice a pliable.
If you follow this procedure CAREFUllY you can get your cover stretched enough to get the rear snaps snapped. Myself, I prefer that I had to do this as I know my cover is good and tight and won't be slapping in the wind.
anyway, i am a happy customer.
|I've been using Tekstyle Snap Tonneau Covers on my trucks for better than 15 years, and have always been happy, so naturally bought another for my new truck. Things have changed though with this new one. Cheaper cover material, poor snaps, and the bows are much cheaper, being bent steel in stead of the extruded aluminum they used to use. The clamps for the rails are still the same as the older units, and very nice, but overall, not happy. Will be shopping for another cover before long I fear. I had my last one ten years, and the cover was still nice when I sold it. I don't believe the fabric on this one will last. Not nearly as heavy or stiff. Much buffeting on the highway.|
|The cover wasn't hard to install except getting the damn thing snapped. I still haven't got the back two corner snap far enough to snap. I WOULD NOT BUY THIS COVER AGAIN. The Berlin cover is three times easier to install and snap. Think about the rear rail springs. Tell Tekstyle about the springs.|
|This is my third Tekstyle tonneau cover and they all have been great. Great customer service also.|
